Episode #278 if the SMRpodcast is online and ready for download. Rod is out this week but Chris and Robb are joined by the awesome Allison Sheridan from the NosillaCast podcast who picked up a couple of new toys from Apple that she wants to tell us all about.
We start the show off with Allison's thoughts on the new Apple TV. The setup of the Apple TV is kind of awesome and infuriatingly frustrating at the same time. Once you get it set up, it appears to be better than older models in every way. Just be careful with the remote as there are reports that it is a little fragile.
Allison also picked up the new iPad Pro yesterday. It's a bit early for Allison's full review, but, her initial impression is that it is large, has awesome speakers, and the full keyboard will take some getting used to if you have muscle memory from the compact keyboards on smaller models of the iPad.
We talk about T-Mobile's Binge On unlimited video streaming for customers with at least a 3GB data plan, how Comcast's capped data plans are completely bogus, rumors that Google is planning to standardize Android chipsets, and Apple Music is now live on Android. We've got all this, our picks and more in episode #278 of the SMRpodcast.
